Nate's Monday Morning Message 

“Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.” – Steve Jobs.

Welcome to this week’s edition of Nate’s Monday Morning. Steve Jobs is one of my favorite business men; a man who I admire and look up to as a mentor and an inspiration. He said a lot of profound things but this quote is one of my favorites for many reasons. Often times we get stuck in the opinion of others, trapped in a job we don’t love or in a relationship we are afraid to leave. We ignore the little voice who longs to be heard – that is the little voice which speaks of our deepest desires and dreams. This week I encourage you to take a moment to listen to the little voice inside you. What is it telling you? Is there an area of your life that you want to make changes or improve? Dare to dream. Find your courage and do it. Now is the time to take action. Make it a great week!


Strength and Courage, Written by David L. Griffith 

It takes strength to be certain, 
It takes courage to have doubts.

It takes strength to fit in, 
It takes courage to stand out.

It takes strength to share a friend's pain, 
It takes courage to feel your own pain.

It takes strength to hide your own pain, 
It takes courage to show it and deal with it.

It takes strength to stand guard, 
It takes courage to let down your guard.

It takes strength to conquer, 
It takes courage to surrender.

It takes strength to endure abuse, 
It takes courage to stop it.

It takes strength to stand alone, 
It takes courage to lean on a friend.

It takes strength to love, 
It takes courage to beloved.

It takes strength to survive, 
It takes courage to live.


“Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it.” - Steve Jobs

“You can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something - your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.” - Steve Jobs

“For the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: 'If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?' And whenever the answer has been 'No' for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.” - Steve Jobs

“Things don't have to change the world to be important.” - Steve Jobs

“I believe life is an intelligent thing: that things aren't random.” - Steve Jobs
